    In what seems like the final blow after a roller coaster ride for its users, Twitpic has announced that it will be shutting down on October 25th.

    The news comes after the company’s original announcement early last month that it would be shutting down, followed by hopes the service would remain active thanks to an apparent acquisition. In its blog post today, founder Noah Everett apologized for getting everyone’s hopes up.

    Twitpic says it was pressured to shut down after Twitter threatened to cut off access to its API if it didn’t drop its trademark filing. Meantime, users must export or otherwise remove all assets from the service by October 25.
